. but there are a ton of these problems in mr. ryan's record. and there's never been a brighter spotlight on it than there was last night. like there was this exchange on the military. >> you don't cut defense by $1 trillion. that's what we're talking about. this invites weakness. look, do we believe in peace through strength? you bet we do. >> devastating cuts on our military. when paul ryan condemns defense cuts as a nefarious democratic idea that he is fighting valiantly against he did not mention he voted in favor of those exact same defense cuts. also on the issue of medicare, i mean, maybe it's been said enough now that it doesn't need to be said every time, but once again at the debate paul ryan pounded his chest and criticized democrats for a change in medicare funding that he's denouncing on the campaign trail. last night as a $716 billion cut to medicare. well, that's a cut to medicare that he put in his own paul ryan budget. you can be for that thing or against that thing but cannot simultaneously be for that thing and against that thing not if we're supposed to take you seriously on poli
he wants to do and i think that's a big advantage. >> what does mr. ryan do if biden keeps trying the human aspect of these numbers of his? >> i have rarely seen him express the kind of humanity, quantatative easing. he's got a great touch on the trail. it will be interesting tonight because it's no doubt that he's going to play that playing card. >> neither one of you are catholic. a smart columnist, this may end up being a philosophical debate tonight. if you're catholic and pro life, it raises the issues of values. i'm pro choice and i'm not happy about it but it's up to the individual woman to make that decision. it's never an easy issue but you should be listening to your church when it comes to social responsibility and you're cutting every poor person's program. that fight will be fascinating. any chance that that will happen? >> we all know that the bishops, the catholic bishops wrote a letter that did not meet the royal standards. >> i read that. >> that's because of what he did for folks on food and nutrition programs. in addition to that, you have the medicare plan and
in less than an hour. mr. ryan has never debated in a world wide forum. while mr. biden has. so it is crunch time for the congressman. mitt romney and the republicans are counting on ryan to continue the momentum and to at least parry anything vice president biden says. can he do it? that is the drama of the debate in kentucky this evening. since the campaign began, the obama team has not dealt with the media very much. even though the media loves the president. the last white house news conference, seven months ago! can you believe it? mr. obama does some soft news, like the late night shows and the view. but rarely sits for policy interviews. i've interviewed the president twice. but indications are he will dodge "the factor" this year. we hope he doesn't. he wants to reach independent voters, this is the place. obviously any interview he does with us will get world wide attention. vice president biden is even worse in the serious media. he's done few national tv interview views and rarely does he talk to local tv people. he's never been on "the factor," although i will talked
's job. and feel free to drive that wedge between the truth and what mr. ryan has to say. >> jennifer: i think there are a lot of wedges or air that can be exposed between, for example, paul ryan and mitt romney. paul ryan's budget, huge opportunity, and of course the lies that paul ryan himself has uttered like in his convention speech. biden is not going to sit back and take that i assume. >> no, i don't think so. and i think people will be watching for daylight between paul ryan and mitt romney. paul ryan not wanting to drag his own career down with this guy who has been kind of on the losingen of the stick. we saw that happen with mccain and palin, right. somebody wanting to make their own career at the expense of someone else's. but joe biden is a thoughtful man, an experienced leader and he is committed to his partner in this, president obama. here is the other thing, joe biden is a heck of a story teller. his gaffes come with a lot of affection, because they are usually in the telling of a really important human story. >> jennifer: i agree with you. but do yo
continue the tax cut for the super wealthy. >> mr. ryan. >> ryan: you know what the unemployment rate in scranton is today? >> biden: i sure do. >> ryan: it was 8.5% when you came in. >> biden: look, that's not how it is going. it is going down -- >> two-minute answer please. >> ryan: did they come in and inherit a tough situation? absolutely. [ laughter ] >> ryan: but we're going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the economy is barely limping along. it is growing at 1.3%, that's slower than it grew last year job growth in september was slower than it was in august and august was slower than it was in july. we're heading in the wrong direction. 23 million americans are struggling for work today. 15% of americans are living in poverty today. this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for real recovery. and that's exactly what mitt romney and i are proposing. get america energy independent. help people who are hurting get the skills they need to get the jobs they want. get the deficit under control. make trade work for america, and c
mr. ryan, but i was especially proud of vice president biden because he hit the issues. and, again, i was reminded that although i have not forgotten, that i've been a 47% that mr. romney is not interested in. the debate went very well for mr. biden. host: thanks for calling. here's the front page of "the huffington post" online. and we want to show you the daily caller. i guess we don't have that one quite ready. next, bill in massachusetts on our republican line. caller: good morning. first, i felt martha raddatz did an excellent job. at times it seemed like ryan was debating two people, the moderator and that joe biden. ryan still kept his cool and did a great job. biden is the reincarnation of harold stasstzen. his incessant interrupting, smirks, giggles and laughing at ryan, he was trying to sucker right into losing his temper, but ryan did not fall for that. an embarrassing display of buffoonery. i am interested to see what mr. obama's supporters will say today, their tone. i think they will be running scared. host: this morning we are using span2012 if you would like to make a
smirked and rolled his eyes, and mr. ryan spoke and laughed at st.. mr. ryan was more earnest and polite, taking a sip of water between answers, listening to mr. biden, who he called joe. a little take from the analysis in carolco." and decided -- analysis from the journal co -- "the wall street journal." caller: i decided after last night -- i listened to congressman ryan. he is not a leader. he is a follower. he said a lot of ignorant things. he did not answer any questions. he stumbled over a lot of his words. , askings on pointpointm questions. yet people going bare feet and wal-mart, and this man is trying to help -- host: will leave your comment there, and we will go to j ohn in new hampshire. why are you undecided? caller: ossapeak. i have not heard in the clear plan from either side. i may laid off executive, trying to find a job like what i was doing before, even beyond that, maybe even about a different career. i am not hearing any clarity. i am hearing name calling. it seems to be -- and my fear is we will end up with another four years of a stalemate, with not being -- with n
